Optus have just launched unlimited "timeless" mobile plans into the Australian marketplace. For A$99 per month you get unlimited calling to other mobiles and landline phones in Australia as well as unlimited SMS and MMS messages. This $99 pack however isn't quite $99 - it requires the purchase of a A$14.95 mobile pack that gives you 200MB of included data.
For A$129 however you receive unlimited calling, SMS and MMS along with 2GB of data.
Now compare that to what you're paying in NZ. Competition really is a great thing.

I am here in OZ and I am quite enjoying the benefits of a healthy competition on the market. Plus I have to say that Optus has their own DSLAMs so you can order ADSL2+ service from them too and bundle that into a very competitive package.
